Levity Records and JCTV have announced a live taping of the new musical BROKEN, to take place Friday, December 3rd at 7:00 P.M. at Trinity Music City (1 Music Village Blvd. in Hendersonville). The original production will be taped for broadcast before a live studio audience, and features an all-star cast of well-known Christian music artists including Callann Lane, Nate Sallie, Darrell Vanzant and Manic Drive frontman Shawn Cavallo.

BROKEN, which will premiere on JCTV in 2011, is a dynamic and moving new musical based on the one-act play “Broken Heart” that has been used by youth ministries, church and para-church organizations around the world. From widespread use by Young Life at its youth resorts all over the country, to television in Germany and a women’s ministry in Australia, the play has been viewed by an estimated audience of more than 4 million worldwide.

BROKEN was developed into a musical by Callann Lane (http://www.CallannLane.com), who saw so much of her own story reflected in the storyline of the main character of the play that she knew it was something she wanted to introduce to a wider audience.

Tickets are FREE and the taping is open to the public. All ages are welcome. Seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended. Register for seats at http://new.evite.com/services/links/FINJ7BXX7S.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
